Like James said, newer/bigger Westie sets *should* support 1080p on both 
DVI inputs, but...

I am not sure if you still use one... but is there any optimization I can do to display PVR350 and 500 recordings on the westinghouse?  I know there used to be some tricks to tweaking the video if you are displaying on a monitor, which is basically what this is right?

Dunno. Haven't really bothered much with any tweaking of SDTV stuff in 
ages, 95% of what I record is HDTV, and the SDTV stuff off my PVR-500 
looks pretty comparable to the SDTV that comes off my cable box.

Always happy to help out. (And happy we finally mostly have RHEL5 put to 
bed and free time for stuff like MythTV is starting to exist in my life
